5 Extreme Sports in Bali

Bali Activities for Your Adrenaline Rush

These extreme sports in Bali will please the staunchest of thrill-seeking fans, offering speed, height and plenty of adrenaline rushes. We’ve compiled this shortlist, featuring some great activities available on the island, which only the boldest of visitors will be able to enjoy.

If you like having some extra fun in the water, you can up the ante by strapping on some high-tech gear that will give you a gravity-defying ride over the waters of Tanjung Benoa. Feel the need for more speed? Then hit the special wakeboarding course and try some tricks. You can go deep, freediving in the waters off the eastern coast, or take to the skies and fly high for breath-taking birds’ eye views over the southern peninsula!

    These water jetpacks, or ‘flyboards’ are a crazy invention. By strapping on special boots or straddling specially designed bikes, a jet propulsion mechanism from a jet ski gets you hovering over the water surface, and you can even ride, or ‘fly’, up to 10 or 15m high! Skilled riders can even perform insane manoeuvres that include diving and breaching. First attempts can be challenging as good balance is key! Read More...

    Flying and enjoying the island by air has been made more accessible by paragliding and paratrike operators who lift off at the main base on the southern Bukit peninsula. Piloting requires a special license, but you can fly tandem, and soar up to 150 metres high while taking in the breath-taking coastal views. Several clubs operate in Bali, offering the chance to fly. Favourable flying months are between April and October. Read More...



    Those looking for a challenge amongst Bali’s highland nature can opt for these exciting ‘canyoning’ activities. The sport combines the thrills of spelunking and rappelling, as you immerse yourself under rushing waterfalls. Sometimes, jumps of up to eight metres and natural ‘waterslides’ are included in the course. There are several operators in Bali providing canyoning tours, with many sites of differing challenges to choose from.



    Discover your inner strength and breathing skills by diving – but without a tank. Freediving (sometimes referred to as Apnea) relies on your ability to hold your breath underwater until you resurface again. As you progress, you can achieve greater depths, times, or distances on one, single breath. There are several operators providing freediving lessons in Bali, and which also combine them with yoga retreats. These include Apneista and Fusion Freediving and Yoga in Amed, East Bali, and Apnea Bali in Tulamben.

    This specially designed lagoon circuit lets you easily thrash out some trick moves with its rig and cable-towing system. As you progress, you can hone your skills on a series of slides and obstacles throughout the lagoon, and even beginners will easily get hooked on wakeboarding. It’s only a matter of time following a series of tow, splash, and repeat, before you get to do some awesome skids and aerials. Read More...
